Nina debuted in Racing to a Big Event! after Professor Kukui and Ash decided to stop for a quick bite at her restaurant. She recommended that Ash enter the upcoming Pokémon Pancake Race, even explaining the rules and helping Ash and Pikachu train for the event.

The next day, Nina and her Alolan Raichu entered the Pokémon Pancake Race. During the final section of the race, Raichu ran in first place, but due to a distraction caused by Team Rocket and Bewear, Samson Oak's Komala was able to take the lead and win the competition, causing Nina to end up tied with Ash for second place. Although she lost, Nina was content as she had a fun time and told Raichu they would try again next year.

In The Professors' New Adventure!, Nina attended the wedding of Professor Kukui and Professor Burnet while also providing the event's catering.

In Sours for the Sweet!, Nina attended Aina's Kitchen to pick up a lunch order. Ulu was revealed to have a crush on her. However, she informed him that she had a fiancé during the Alola Bread Festival competition, leaving him heartbroken. She later revealed in Alola, Alola! that she had married her fiancé.

In Lillier and the Staff!, Nina and her fiancé attended a play at the Pokémon School.

Ash and his classmates sometimes visit the pancake parlor. On Misty's Alolan holiday, they stopped at the restaurant to enjoy Nina's pancake stacks in Alola, Alola!.


Nina is always upbeat, providing quality customer service alongside her delicious pancake stacks.
